Mama Tried

Spent last weekend in Milwaukee for the Mama Tried Show. It was my first time ever to the Midwest and it did not disappoint. I got sent to the show through Revolution Motorcycle Magazine, Canadas largest custom motorcycle mag. I covered the show and my trip for them and just wrapped up the story, so check it out in the next issue. Here's some sneak peek photos from the show:

I also got to go to the Harley Davidson Museum while I was in Milwaukee. If you ever get the chance to go to Milwaukee during the Mama Tried weekend, you won't be let down. There is so much to do there in a 3 day trip, especially if you're a motorcycle fanatic. Here's a shot of the Captain America bike from Easy Rider... No it's not the original, but a perfect replica. They have no clue where the original is (apparently..) I'll put up more shots after the story is released!

Paradise Road Show

The first ever Paradise Road Show went down this past January at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. Hosted by Lanakila MacNaughton from the Women's Moto Exhibit, Chase Stopnik from Cycle Zombies and Adri Law, LA based photographer and stylist, Paradise Road Show brought out 30 vintage motorcycles from pre-1960 and a dozen vintage hot rods. The weather was freakin' perfect and the crowd was good looking as hell. Here's a couple photos I took at the event. The rest are saved for the new issue of Revolution Motorcycle Magazine. Pick up a copy!

Giddy Up

I went down to New Braunfelds in Southern Texas for the Giddy Up Vintage Chopper Show. I covered the story for Revolution Motorcycle Magazine, so you'll have to wait for the article to come out to get the full story and all my photos, but here's a good taster!! The event was really insane. I will be back next year for sure, if I'm fully recovered by then!

The One Motorcycle Show

The One Motorcycle Show is always a wicked time. This is the 3rd year in a row that I went down with Yamaha master Tory Potoroka from Dirt First Dirt Last. Last year he brought down his SR cafe/tracker and this year he brought down his XT500 chopper build. 

It's rad being able to tag along with a builder from the show because I get to watch all the builders roll their bikes in and see who built what. This year my favourite bikes were the Canadian chopper crew obviously, Tyler Lepore's Panhead which won Best Chopper & Kenneth from Moto Galore's Flathead OH MY GODDDDDDDDD. I spent a lot of the weekend doing some content creation for Vancouver based brand Hitcase, so here's a couple pictures I took with their new product:
